MONTPELIER, Vt. -
A settlement Wednesday in a lawsuit challenging the state's response to elder abuse cases.
Vermont Legal Aid and Disability Rights Vermont sued the state's Adult Protective Services, saying the division routinely violates the law that requires investigations to start within 48 hours of being reported.
[More lip service from a branch of our nationwide network known as Adult Protective Services (APS). What should be done is that these so called civil servants need to have their paychecks tied to pay for performance. Otherwise, they are just collecting welfare disguised as work.]
